    Lots of solid matchups in the weight class. Who should his 1st fight be at 155? I think a fight with Tony Ferguson would be dope. I know he's matched up, but thats a fight I wanna see.

    It should be a big 155'er to make Dustin quickly realize he made a mistake moving up.

    If Benderson somehow loses to Carrone he would be a solid option.

    I think it was a mistake too. Seemed perfectly suited for 145.

    Agreed. He should fight McGregor again after he loses to Aldo and decides to move up.

    Let him fight Diego.



    If not, Matt Wiman wouldn't be a bad option.

    i think he'll have a winning record.
    its no secret that he used to cut a huge amount of weight to make 145.
    he is a good righter.

    Big weight cuts can take a toll on your brain and actually make you more susceptible to getting rocked.

    I don't think he'll have much of an issue with size, he just won't be one of the bigger guys in his division anymore. The problem he faces is that 155 has better fighters.

    Poirier fukin up moving up to LW. Ferguson would smash him, he will see their are bigger fighters ar 155 like cerrone, benson, ferguson too. He should stay at 145
